  • Title page should have:
  • Title
  • Name
  • Course (optional)
  • Teacher name
  • Date (tip date of completion not date the assignment is due. Make you appear

    cited as such.
  • All quantitative information (stats, numbers, etc) has to be
  • Sub heads should only be used when it contributes to the
    understanding of information is broken down.
